    Bio

    It is an honor and privilege to serve as a physician specialized in the preservation of vision every day.

    Growing up in Washington DC, with two parents and three siblings dedicated to the lifelong practice of medicine, I was immersed in fascinating experiences in all aspects of medicine at an early age. It was when my grandfather began to lean on my shoulder to battle irreversible blindness from Glaucoma that I vowed to dedicate my life to the education, prevention, and treatment of this silent yet devastating disease.

    By age 18, my family had become Texans. I accepted the opportunity to pursue a combined undergraduate-medical degree (BSMD) in English and Biological Sciences in New York. After graduation, I completed an internship at Albany Medical Center and then Ophthalmology Residency at Lions Eye Institute. There, I was fortunate to have renowned mentors from Harvard and Will’s Eye Institutes who had profound influence in Ophthalmology and also on me. Working closely in their offices and operating rooms allowed me not only to research and publish cutting edge studies on eye disease, but also to experience the humility and strength needed to be steadfast guardians of sight.

    I happily returned home to Texas for my Glaucoma fellowship at UT Southwestern Medical Center where I stayed on as faculty and medical director of service for almost 8 years. Surrounded by strong leaders, I grew exponentially in leadership positions in ethics, institutional review, and quality assurance, sub serving to the highest standards of care. The best part of my role there was teaching the ophthalmology residents which I still do as Associate Clinical Faculty.

    I am so grateful for the opportunity to be part of the impeccable family at Total Eye Care where I feel I can bring both the expertise and the tailored personal attention I value, to each and every patient I meet.

    I look forward to sharing your stories and some of my own, and possibly some milestones along the way from my husband and two very active children, who love to hear anecdotes about these very same experiences that fascinated me as a child.
